Super

Co-Presented with Independent Film Festival Boston

Free Preview Screening! Director James Gunn in Person!

Free! First come, first seated so get here early!

Super(2010) dir James Gunn w/Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon, Liv Tyler [96 min]

This hilarious, amazingly twisted dark comedy features Rainn Wilson as Frank, a man shattered by his wife’s return to her drug-dealing ex. Donning a (very) homemade costume, Frank turns to a life of crime-fighting to win her back. Applying an absurd realism to masked vigilantes and their sidekicks, SUPER shows us just how messed up the idea of becoming a ‘real-life superhero’ truly is while simultaneously making us cheer for Frank’s alter ego, The Crimson Bolt, and his spunky sidekick Boltie (Page). Do not miss this!!
